    Home made tools

     



    What tools have you made at home to help you with your project? I did this wrench to get to a back bolt, on the headers, on my 78 camaro.

    well done and I guess that "necessity is the mother of invention" after all isn't it?

    don't have any pics but I made a hood spring application tool for my '56 Jimmy and when I was shoeing horses, I built a tool that would allow me to pick up a "hot" shoe and place it on the hoof for a perfect fit without burning me or the animal
